Subject: Great run, want to hear more
Much of this run at the Academy of music is missing from archive (or are represented by some rough auds). Some great music to heard for sure. I like 3-23's performance better but this show is no slouch with a top-10 Cumberland and a really nice OO and Truckin'.
Fabulous PITB, top-ten Cumberland. And Truckin' is great - you can actually hear Pigpen's organ!
The spring of '72 is Ron's swan song - he seems to lose energy by the second set. And then...he was gone.
I rarely download anything past the summer of '72, when he played his last show.
Subject: No Turning Back Now!
Only my 2nd set of shows. First one a few mos. earlier at The Felt Forum 12/71. Sta in the orchestra at the funky-far-out Academy of Music. Mirrored ball twisting and turning during TOO and when the boys ventured into deep space. Love these Academy shows. After these ther was no turning back. My seat was secured on the bus! Check out the stand alone Dark Star a few nights later. 3/23/if memory serves.
Subject: love this show
Love this show, love this venue and love that year. And really, really love the Grateful Dead! Just finished Phil's "Searching For The Sound", so I'm feeling a little melancholy about our favorite band and our favorite lead guitarist.
Black Throated Wind is great, and Jerry's wah-wah on Greatest Story is a joy.
This is five stars from start to finish.
Subject: solid 72
can definitely hear the changes coming over the band coming out of 71, great loaded 72 show here, only problems are it buzzes throughout, mostly in the beginning, are there any better sources?
other than the buzz, which is bearable, this is a super show, tenn jed stands out in my memory but all songs were played well and enjoyable, love the tunes! good lovin > casey great end to first set too
Subject: sound mix
the beginning mix seems to have bobby really in front with jerry's guitar invisible. jerry's voice is low. but as the notes state that the mix is off in the beginning. the tuning between bertha and balck throated wind, bob says something like 'what we have here is a case of new stings' btw sounds tight. the mixing with bob still higher than jerry. his voice sonds great but is his gutiar still suffeing from a case of new strings? on my eq i put the bass really high, phil rocks.
Subject: snojon's question
Snojon, I always wondered that my self. It seems like after 1978 the audio quality of most of these shows is not as good as shows from the early 70s and even some from the 60s. I guess though, its a good thing as those 70s shows are Smokin

I've always loved LLR when Bobby didn't get too cheesy.

Subject: Great show after initial problems
One thing though, either the stream or the printed setlist has Chinatown Shuffle and Next Time You See Me switched around.
Subject: great early renditions
this show clearly shows a band in transition.
very interesting to listen to these songs in the early developmental stages. this is a band that was always evolving, and during the time period of this show, they were evolving on a nightly basis. I'm lucky to have stumbled across this show in the archives
One thing though I could never figure out though.
Why do these early 70's recordings sometimes have a better sound quality than some of the shows from the 90's. Did the technology get worst?

Subject: Phil Sings on LLRain
Wow. these baby renditions never cease to amaze me.
Subject: Here's the first set and crystal clear
after some initial mixing problems and the mentioned hum, tis show is the dress rehearsal for the Europe Tour. All the groundwork laid in autumn 1971 blooms here and the band is cooking. A lot of the blues tunes have a barroom band feel to them, a sound they lost along the way. But Next Time You See Me, You Win Again, Cumberland Blues and Big RR Blues sound like a Saturday night at a honky tonk. And that is a good thing! Pigpen? At this stage of his life he is balling!
Subject: pedal steel
LLR humble steel treat!
